  1. Thanks Don for posting the pics. I see it went for 557Euro, pricey filler.
  2. Thanks Tomasz I am also hoping to get some weights from other sources for comparision. Best Alan
  3. Does anyone know the weight of a Sachsen-Altenburg Herzog Ernst Medaille Steckkreuz please?
  4. It looked ok to me when compared to what I could find online. So I took a chance on it. Like you say scarce. Thank you for commenting.
  5. Hi Guy, Just tripping around Germany at the moment and I came across this... I know the pics aren‘t the best but does anyone have one to compare? https://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsche-staaten/ehrenkreuz-mit-krone-und-schwertern.html Any input would be great. Alan
  6. Thank you Seeheld, here they are. Nice one. Like yourself I also collect the many German States, but have found it increasingly harder to find pieces. Is this something you have found also?
  7. Hi Laurentius, Thank you and yes this is what I have been able to put together from Mecklenburg. Do you have some pieces yourself? Mfg Alan
  8. Hi Seeheld, This information is a great help, thank you. Now I can set about getting the appropriate ring. Mfg Alan
  9. Hello Guys, After seeing this Hausorden der Wendischen Krone Ritterkreuz recently I took the plunge and bought it. Having just received it in the mail, It has left me with a couple of questions. Firstly it was sold to me as a Gold version, from the pics it is a bit hard to judge but after weighing it I think it is a little too heavy to be gold as I would have expected a weight of around 21g from the reference I have. What do you think Gold or Silver Vergoldet? Does any one have a Gold version they could weigh so that I might compare? Also I would have expected the ose to be gold but this one appears to be a replacement, would this be correct? Lastly were the Knight's Crosses made from 333 (8Kt) 585 (14kt) or 750 (18kT) Gold? so that I might get the right replacement ose Any information would be gratefully received. Mfg. Alan
  10. Thank you Roman for opinion and support much appreciated. I look forward to adding this zimmermann Lippe Kriegsehrenkreuz to my collection along with the Reuß Kriegsverdienstkreuz.
  11. Hi Guys, Anyone here who collects the various state pinbacks and who managed to catch Torsten Straube's update today would certainly have peaked many's interest, myself included. I would like to hear people's thoughts on these 3 pinbacks in particular. Lippe Kriegsehrenkreuz für heldenmütige Tat 1914 Steckkreuz - A good award piece by Zimmermann? Do you think the pin has been reattached? Reuß Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1915 Steckkreuz - An award piece? Possible maker? Sachsen-Altenburg Herzog Ernst Medaille mit Schwertern Steckkreuz - An award piece? Possible maker? Those who have you who have these nice awards already, I would love to hear your comparisons. Alan
  12. I have noticed a few MVKs (1. Kl mX und Kr) for sale lately. I thought I would add them here for future reference. I Look forward to hearing peoples opinions on originality. No.1 No.2 No.3 (Pics taken from eMedals website)
